Global Business Entrepreneurship

November 2019 Newsletter

The Global Business/Entrepreneurship Strand focused most of this month on client projects, site visits, and preparing for internships. The associates started off this month with a Mock Interview at Lewis and Clark Career Center. Thanks to the assistance of SCC CAPS business partners, the associates were able to practice interviewing and received immediate feedback. This feedback helped them prepare for their internship interviews. Stay tuned to future newsletters to learn about the internship experiences.

Client Projects

Made in St. Charles County

For the past two years the SCC CAPS program and Lindenwood DECA program have partnered in a client project. The goal is to create an ongoing partnership to improve economic development in St. Charles County. This year the project was to assist the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce with a marketing program called Made in St. Charles County.

The mission of Made in Saint Charles County is to bring awareness to locally owned businesses in hopes the community will take advantage of the goods and services being sold. This website was created by four St. Charles County CAPS associates with assistance with Lindenwood University DECA students. In addition, Scott Tate, President of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce, and Craig Felzien, Director of Duree Center for Entrepreneurship at Lindenwood University, provided support for the project.
